Readers may not, however, be aware that David Singer has drafted a petition
"to reverse UNESCO's illegal admission of Palestine without the required majority of 129 votes required by article II (2) of UNESCO's Constitution.
This decision has cost UNESCO the loss of at least $100 million per annum in American funding."In answer to queries from me, David Singer explains:
'Petition will be presented to UNESCO
The Executive Committee of UNESCO can recommend the resolution to admit Palestine be nullified since the required majority of 129 members was not obtained OR resolve to obtain an advisory opinion of the International Court of Justice as to the legality of Palestine's admission to UNESCO
UNESCO should be concerned to ensure it acts at all times in accordance with its Constitution. Where there is any doubt then steps should be taken to remove such doubt. Nothing I have received from UNESCO to date has rebutted my claim.'The petition is available for signing here
